Saachi Sen is a Mumbai-born, London-grown indie-pop singer/songwriter. A past Resident Artist at the famous Camden Roundhouse, her writing has gained high level recognition, achieving PRS for Music’s Lynsey de Paul Prize, and winning places in Roundhouse/EMI’s ’30-30’ project album and the Young Songwriters Competition UK. She gigs regularly in London’s emerging music circuit, with highlights from the past year including Roundhouse Rising festival, Frank Turner’s Lost Evenings II, her first Sofar Sounds show at their Hackney HQ, and her biggest gig yet - playing to 10,000 people at Pride in London in Trafalgar Square. She was also featured at King’s Cross’ summer concert series the Cubitt Sessions, and The Southbank Centre’s seminal South Asian arts festival, Alchemy.
As frontwoman of jazz/pop band ‘Saachi’, she’s played to packed out audiences at the iconic Camden Assembly, Upstairs at the Garage and the Cambridge Junction. The band were finalists in the Isle of Wight Festival’s ‘New Blood’ competition as one of 8 out of over 2000 entrant acts, as well as Cambridge Band Competition, broadcast on Cambridge TV and radio. They sold out a headline show at The Borderline in November 2018, and placed on the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Longlist in 2019 – with Indie blog Neon Filler praising ‘fine, radio-friendly tunes’ and Saachi’s ‘fantastic vocal range’.
Saachi’s solo songs draw influences from classic songwriters like Norah Jones and Don Mclean, with pure, melodic vocal lines and a focus on meaningful lyrics. Her first solo single ‘Tethered’ was released in August 2018, and is about letting go of the things that keep you from following your dreams. Her upcoming tracks have been recorded at Spotify Secret Genius and Abbey Road studios, to be released in summer 2019.
